Ongorur Doubles Cugudda
Level 12: 1,500/3,000 (3,000)
Sirin Ongorur was among the chip leaders at the last break. Level 12 hasn’t been his blind level as he doubled up three players to get back down to a slightly above-average stack.
We caught the third double-up while passing by the table and it went down as follows:
Lydia Cugudda jammed from late position for 35,000 and was called by Ongorur.
Lydia Cugudda: A♣7♣
Sirin Ongorur: A♥5♦
This hand very often would end with a chop pot but Cugudda’s seven-kicker came into play after the 8♠9♠4♣9♦6♠ ran out on the board. Cugudda now had some breathing room after previously losing a chunk of her once-healthy stack.
This author would like to thank Ongorur for his hard work and for his time in helping set up the technical bits of our blog and wish him the best of luck in growing his stack back up again.
Sirin Ongorur – 163,000
Lydia Cugguda – 74,500
